Windows software of the day [April 5th, 2012]

Posted By Locutus On April 5, 2012 @ 12:02 AM In Windows Software of the Day | 16 Comments

Windows has hundreds of thousands of programs. Because of this great volume and lack of a central store, software discovery (aka finding new and useful programs) is extremely difficult. With our Windows Software of the Day [1] initiative, dotTech aims to change that. Everyday we post three programs, allowing our readers to discover new software, daily. Enjoy!

Thanks Mike!

7 Taskbar Tweaker

[10]Many people like the Windows 7 taskbar but also think it could be a lot better. However, everyone has a different idea of what better could be. Some want to rearrange the live thumbnails, while others simply want to be able to use the scroll wheel to cycle between thumbnails.

7 Taskbar Tweakers lets you do all this and of course more. Hate the Show Desktop button? Begone! Want dragging a file onto the program to open it instead of pinning it? Consider it done.

7TT is a great app for anyone who feels that they need more control over the taskbar.

Price: Free!

Version discovered: v3.4

Supported OS: Windows 7

Download size: 323.9KB

Malware scan: VirusTotal scan results 0/42 [11]

Thanks Mike!


[13]Notepad, as everyone knows, is a terrible notepad. However, it’s there and fast, so many people just live with the clutter of a thousand unorganized text files. Flashnote, on the other hand, uses a single, quick database and offers instant access via a keyboard shortcut, making it even quicker than Notepad.

Flashnote is a simple program. It lets you take notes and subnotes, and that’s about it. It’s a nice little program that’s easy to learn and downright great for taking notes.

Price: Free!

Version discovered: v4.3

Supported OS: Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7, Debian, Ubuntu

Download size: 2.2MB

Malware scan: VirusTotal scan results 0/42 [14]

Thanks Mike!

dotTechies: We have tested all the software listed above. However, Windows Software of the Day articles are not intended as “reviews” but rather as “heads-up” to help you discover new programs. Always use your best judgement when downloading programs, such as trying trial/free versions before purchasing shareware programs, if applicable.
